Today was a big cheating day. My brother just retired (at 43 years old!) and my SIL threw him a surprise retirement party. I knew there would be lots of food there that wasn’t on the approved detox list, and I just made myself okay with that. I did what I could and enjoyed myself, and then got back on track.
Breakfast was a delicious concoction that one of the ladies in my detox group suggested. I’d like to take a better picture so I can blog the recipe, but it’s got red pepper, green pepper, onion, mushrooms, and kale with some seasoning, and it was yummy with a runny egg on top!
I had a handful of grapes before we left the house for the party. No picture of them. You know what grapes look like.
For lunch at the party I had some chicken, a little bit of baked beans, a little bit of potato salad, a little bit of cole slaw, and just the top of my corn muffin. I really wanted the corn muffin in a bad way, but ate just the top part since that’s my favorite and gave the rest to Chase. Compromise, right?
Then I had to have a slice of cake, though right after I kind of regretted having such a big piece. It was yummy. Unfortunately, I scarfed it down so fast I barely remember eating it. I should have savored it since it’ll be my last for a while.
When we got home and got the kids bathed (lord were they dirty!) and put to bed, I had an apple with some peanut butter.
I really didn’t eat a lot of food today, and even though I had some unapproved foods, I’m proud that stayed away from the chips and didn’t overindulge in anything other than too much of that cake.
Oh, and I had a cookie too. My mom made them from my grandmother’s recipe and I needed to make sure they tasted right. (Okay, fine. We both know that’s not true…I just wanted a cookie.)
